🤢

🤢

Has anyone else had issues with throwing up every few days? No certain types of foods seem to trigger it, and it can happen from after breakfast-waking up in the middle of the night to be sick. I’ve been on Metformin since April, and it was a little rough on me in the beginning, but I’ve been good with it for months now. The only other thing I can think of is that I just got put back on birth control a little over a month ago, and maybe it’s due to my hormones shifting? (Ps I’m definitely not… read more

Who Has Experience Taking Inositol Supplements To Improve Their PCOS Symptoms?

Who Has Experience Taking Inositol Supplements To Improve Their PCOS Symptoms?

There are articles on PubMed that show inositol can help improve insulin sensitivity and the symptoms of PCOS.

Of course no doctor has discussed this with me, but my PCP said it would be safe for me to try.

Have any of you used it? Was it effective? And did you have any side effects?

I had bad nausea for the few days I tried it. I am going to try again with a smaller dose.

Thanks for the help everyone!

Chronic Nausea

Chronic Nausea

For the past year and a half I’ve been constantly nauseous and nothing helps. I was put on metformin and Ozempic to encourage weight loss and I ended up in the hospital twice because the medications caused my nausea to get so bad that I could not keep any food down and I couldn’t drink water. I’m so tired of being sick 24/7 and nothing helps with the nausea. I’ve tried zofran, regalin, and natural remedies. Does anyone else experience chronic nausea? I’ve changed my medications and nothing has… read more

What Can Cause Testosterone Increase?

What Can Cause Testosterone Increase?

I found out that I have PCOS in august 2021. At the time of those original labs my total testosterone was at 43. I got tested last week and it’s increased to 62 despite the fact I’ve been trying to do all the things - eat healthy, move more, taking Ovasitol and lots of supplements. Has anyone had any experiences of things that have increased their T-levels? I realize this is like the ultimate question, but I’m looking for personal experiences that might shed light on something I’m doing that is… read more
